Alabama backup QB David Cornwell announced Wednesday that he will transfer out of the program.

He is the third Alabama quarterback to transfer this season. Per


Cornwell becomes the third Alabama quarterback who has elected to go elsewhere after true freshman Jalen Hurts was elevated to a starting role in Week 2 during September. Later that month, Blake Barnett withdrew from Alabama and enrolled in Palomar College in California before committing to Arizona State earlier this week.

Cornwell, who stands 6-5 and weighs 234 pounds, will be a graduate transfer with two years of remaining eligibility. Because of his status, he can play immediately at his next school and hopes to land somewhere where he will be a more significant contributor than he was at Alabama.

Another high rated player transferring to avoid a wasted career by signing with Bama. Before long they will start learning going the odds of a 5* at Bama has a lesser chance of making than than at another school.
